Port of Spain, Jul 6: The tri-series thrown wide open by India's emphatic comeback, the West Indies and Sri Lanka will lock horns here tomorrow in their crucial last league match with the hosts needing to win the game to secure a berth in the final.



The Caribbean side's two-match winning streak ended with India handing it a 102-run thrashing in a rain-truncated match.

The result kept India alive even though Virat Kohli's men had lost both their previous matches of the series and denied the West Indies a smooth passage to the final.

The Caribbeans, however, are still on top in the table with nine points, while the Lankans are tied with India at five points each.

Dwayne Bravo's men will have to regroup quickly against Angelo Mathews' side, which is flying high after demolishing India in its previous game.

But the West Indies can draw confidence from their earlier game against Sri Lanka which the hosts won comfortably.

The West Indies, which seemed like an on-a-roll side, was brought back to the ground rather brutally yesterday. At first their bowlers were hammered by a rampaging Kohli and later their batsmen had no answer to the questions that a disciplined Indian attack posed.

The over-reliance on Chris Gayle's pyrotechnics also stood out as no Caribbean batsman showed the stomach for a fight after his early departure.

Johnsen Charles was the only one to give a decent account of himself with a 39-ball 45 but he was also guilty of letting slip a good start.

The Sri Lankan batting, on the other hand, was the most decisive factor in their win against India.
